Victoria's Secret-Inspired Sorbet!


Can you guess what the secret ingredient in my latest Victoria's Secret-Inspired PINK creation is? 

I'll give you some clues ...

>> This smoothie sorbet is great for your skin because the secret ingredient is a blood-purifier and acts as a detoxifier for your liver.

>> This smoothie might cause you to become a better lover because of the high amounts of boron, which produces sex hormones.

>> Although higher in sugar, this ingredient is low in calories, and actually helps to lower your blood pressure because the sugar is slowly absorbed within the body.

>> Pregnant women would especially take to this smoothie because whatever is in it helps to replenish cell growth and replenish iron and folic acid.

>> Like chocolate and turkey, this ingredient contains high amounts of betaine and tryptophan, which may enhance one's mood and help with depression.

If you haven't already caught on, this Pink-Inspired ingredient is nature's very own beet root! Buy them fresh and cook them yourself, or buy them canned, jarred or pickled.

>> Try them in a juice along with celery, spinach, apple and carrots for a vitamin and phytochemical-packed power drink.

>> Try them tossed in a salad with spinach, red onions, cabbage and balsamic vinegar.

>> Try them in my Victoria's Secret Pink Sorbet. Full recipe below:

Ingredients:

1/2 can of beets (in water)
3 Tbsp CALM raspberry lemonade flavor (Magnesium supplement to promote mood and digestion)
